Will Psylocke & Fantomex's Kiss Break Up X-Force?

Psylocke and Fantomex sitting in a tree...

It's true, sometimes a picture really is worth a thousand words- especially when you put it in the context of the current storyline. Case in point, a leaked image of Uncanny X-Force #12 reveals a kiss being shared by X-Force teammates Psylocke and Fantomex. Don't get me wrong, any make-out session that graces a cover of a comic will always make me want to pick it up- but this image is particularly jaw dropping. I am in no way exaggerating, either- when I first saw the image my jaw literally dropped. If you have been reading Rick Remender's run on X-Force, then chances are you may have picked up on Fantomex's attraction (be it physical or otherwise) to Psylocke. 


Even if you have not, it is certainly something you might want to go back and look for in the last six issues of the series because it is so well done. Remender subtly lays the groundwork for a (adulterous?) relationship to blossom- and even if it only happens in Fantomex's imagination, there's a good chance Psy could find out about it. With Psylocke being responsible for taming Warren's dark side, a kiss like this could be the end of the team. How patient will Psylocke continue to be with Warren's ( Archangel) multiple personality disorder (can I call it that?)?

What do you think of the cover to issue #12 of Uncanny X-Force, and is it something you want to see? Do you think a kiss shared between these two could tear the team apart? What are the possible consequences?

Hey, no lady can resist a smooth French accent. Looks like he misdirected her right into his bed lol.

I have been waiting for this forever. I had the same exact reaction when I saw it.

Ewww!  That's what I have to say. Am I the only one who finds Fantomex, icky?  It is my hope that this is ONLY in Fantomex's head, please.  

I'm a fan of Psylocke but I will have NO CHOICE... I will remove her from my hot women list if she really is into this goof.  This could blow up.

All of Warren's personalities are going to be ticked.

I actually kind of like the idea of them together. But I also have to point out that cover art has a tendency of being horribly misleading and sometimes not even occurring within the pages of the comic.

Geez Louise, first Wolverine and Domino, and now this? I thought X-Force was a team of (more  or less) assassins, not a swingers' club!

I kid, really; good for them! Maybe Psylocke can talk Fantomex into wearing something other than Storm Shadow's hand-me-downs.

Hey, I've never seen a ring on her finger.

LOL if women's hotness are determined by who they hook up then I really gotta change my ranking system ;-)

I bet Warren goes nuts before this even happens, if it at all.

They've been slow-burning this ever since Fantomex joined up with the X-Men.

No ring means no marriage. Yet she is dating someone, so this is cheating!

Hey, if I can't respect a woman, she loses all hotness.

First of all.. Psylocke could do soooo much better than Fantomex!! And secondly... Psylocke could do soooo much better than Archangel!! Since when was it her responsibilty to take care of this bipolar wealthy brat!?!?! Ever since Psylocke returned to the X-Men, there was no actual connection made between Angel and Psylocke's love relationship!!! I mean during Secret Invasion... Angel had a brief dialogue with Husk (another former lover) and that was it!! The only time Psylocke and Angel ever spoke prior before Uncanny X-Force was in the short lived team X-Club. Then, all of a sudden Angel and Psylocke join X-Force and become romantic just like that again!!! Too fast... way too fast!!!

Posted by hitechlolife

Wow. Considering Psylocke's current feelings about Fantomex' trigger happy antics this is a bit of a curveball. Even if it is in his mind or an illusion, I can't see Betsy being too understanding.

@papad1992:
Logic in X-men relationships?! We don't need any frakin' logic!!! All we need is nostalgia, sweet nostalgia and safety of knowing Gambit/Rogue & Warren/Betsy!!! Having people logically move on to other relationships with more compatible people?! What will you ask for next...consistently excellent writing?! Sham on you :P
@B'Town: 
But what if she saw something in her caveman, douchetard, ex that the rest of the world just wasn't privy to? We've all had some people we've dated/hooked up with that we'd rather not have other know about. At least I know I have.

Now we just need Emma to kiss Psylocke, her fake British accent >> Fantomex's fake French accent! Then we need Fantomex to kiss Namor and thus make Cyclops even more pissy at Namor and then hopefully the entire X-Franchise can explode, rather than just break up, and then Carey, Gillen K and Y can restructure it.....

Psylocke needs to aim higher for her own dignity. Please let this not happen.

Yeah, I have to say it is better not to advertise those bad fugly hookups.  Denial is best served here.  hehheh.

I would prefer that too, I adore both Betsy and Emma, and the... minor animosity they hold towards each other, would create a much better and authentic tension between the two than Psy and the Vincent Cassel wannabe! Its great too, since Psylocke use to be a stunning modelesque, type gal, who wanted to be a powerful warrior and Emma was the mousy and shy girl who wanted to be modelesque and powerful! Both those characters are now those things. Hell this story line practically writes itself! Oh, and both have made Cyclops legs turn to jelly in the past! This is the fanon-ship that keeps on sailing! 

I am not sure I would be a good nomination for the writer... but I have already drawn the fan art of the two... 0_o (lol)

Betsy is too much of a wild child to be tied down to anyone dude. Can't tame a foxy hurricane!

 I'd say better Phantomex than Angel, but covers aren't very truthful.

I'd say you have set this story up, I like it.  As for the fan art; they say, a picture is worth a thousand words.

Your kidding right? Psylocke is at it again. Man they said Gambit was the player.

Agreed.  I was disappointed by that too, but then again, it's not like this wasn't obviously in the making.



Hey, maybe it's Warren dressed up like Fantomex!!  Wait, that would be even more disturbing for Warren to be okay with that. :P

Man, the artist must have some one model for them. Very detailed.

Awesome! Love Fantomex! Love Psylocke! Hate Warren!

It's like Christmas for me. Remender is single handedly drawing me back to Marvel (the ba*****).

Edited by Fantasgasmic

Yeah, because comic book covers never  show something that doesn't actually happen in the comic. Interiors or it doesn't happen.

Posted by Joe Venom

Question? with the way his nervous system works will he feel the kiss?

Posted by goldenkey

wonder if he touches the booty.
Posted by DMC

to answer your question Babs....yes, yes it will. ^_^

Posted by Undeadpool

That cover might be the sexiest they've come out with since the X-Force cover where Wolverine is behind Domino and his claws are cutting into her clothing. That was one of the first covers where I thought "This is straight-up SEXY. It isn't sophomoric, or childish, or pandering, this is sexy on an adult level." And this cover does the same, so well done, Marvel!
